Sadler’s Wells is a world-leading creative organisation, dedicated to presenting, producing and touring dance made today in all its forms. Sadler’s Wells commissions, presents and produces more dance than any other theatre in the world – from tango to hip hop, ballet to flamenco, Bollywood to cutting-edge contemporary dance. With an innovative, year-round programme of performances and learning activities, this is the place where artists come together to create dance, and where we welcome everyone to experience dance and be inspired.  Over half a million people come to our theatres in London each year, with many more enjoying our touring productions at partner venues across the UK and in cities around the world. 

When artists and audiences talk about Sadler’s Wells, they use the words: ‘innovative, exciting and risk-taking’. Trying new things has always been part of our DNA, and it’s more important today than it has ever been.  We are now in growth mode, with multiple ongoing transformational projects.  This is an exciting time in the theatre’s history as we work towards opening a fourth venue in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London in 2022. This expansion, which takes place in the context of an increasingly rich and ambitious artistic programme requires a senior management structure better aligned to the needs and strategic aims of the organisation. The new senior role of Director of Finance and Business Performance is a key part of that structure, taking management responsibility for a range of functions critical to the operation and future success of the organisation.

Candidates will be qualified accountants and have previous experience leading financial and/or commercial activity across a complex organisation.  They will demonstrate entrepreneurial flair, as well as high-level strategic planning and budgeting experience, and excellent leadership qualities.  This role offers you the opportunity to bring your ideas, passion, knowledge and experience to Sadler’s Wells. In return, the successful candidate will be part of a strong and supportive team in a world-class arts organisation.
